BTS’ Permission To Dance is getting a lot of love from the ARMY. The song, which is close to five minutes has crossed the 100 million mark on YouTube. But there is another reason why people are loving the number. The choreography has used sign language, which is a rare. This has made the song much more inclusive than what people expected. While fans noticed it, and showered love on the South Korean boy band for being so considerate and inclusive. Fans shared videos and tweets of how their friends/relatives who were affected by hearing loss reacted to the number.
Now, the chief of the WHO (World Health Organization) has put up a tweet in appreciation of the boy band. He thanked them for being so inclusive. ARMY reacted by lauding the gesture of the WHO chief.
Thank you, @BTS_twt, for including sign language in your #PermissiontoDance music video.
As 1.5 billion people in the world are affected by hearing loss; sign language can help them to continue enjoying music which can bring joy to life. https://t.co/rG9etJSenR pic.twitter.com/a2rLn1AGkW

People were also quick to point out that Kim Taehyung also used sign language in the Class of 2020. It was a collaboration with YouTube to congratulate students who missed out on a physical graduation ceremony. He has spoken about how he wants to learn sign language so that he can communicate with Army members who have such issues.

BTS is surely winning its way into the hearts of millions. RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook and V are one of the legends of modern music.
